This fight came down to Vera's speed and volume vs. Chavez's power. The smaller, faster Vera consistently outworked Chavez throughout the 10 round affair, though very rarely landed a truly significant blow. Chavez threw far less, but with his size advantage, he was able to hit the more visually impressive blows. Judging came down to how you scored aggression vs. power. The vast majority of analysts and ringside observers had the fight for Vera. Unfortunately, the views of the judges, the only three people whose views ultimately matter, differed from most. They awarded Chavez the decision, in two cases by a surprisingly wide margin.
